One of the last living witnesses against Uribe survives two assassination attempts

One of the last living witnesses against Uribe survives two assassination attempts
by Adriaan Alsema April 9, 2018

Colombia’s Supreme Court ordered increased protection for one of the last living witnesses in a criminal case over the violence-ridden past of former President Alvaro Uribe after multiple assassination attempts.

Juan Guillermo Monsalve was taken to a safe house after the son of one of Uribe’s former employees survived a stabbing and a poisoning attempt in prison, local media reported.

The former president is investigated by the Supreme Court over attempts to manipulate Monsalve who has claimed Uribe and his brother Santiago formed their own death squads in the 1990s.

Other possible key witnesses died in suspicious circumstances or were murdered as the Uribe family’s political and economical power grew.
